I can’t Help It (Part 1)

A new day dawns. New opportunities arise. New decisions to make, actions to undertake. Life is essentially a routine. In many ways life has always been routine no matter how you see it. However There is a problem with the merry-go-round that is life. I know I ought to be a lot more than I am but I am not. I look around for who or what to trade blames with but I just can’t shake the conviction that there is nothing and no one that can dare share in the blame of the struggles of my life.

Every day I rise and put a smile on my face- a smile that has become cemented by the façade that is life. You tell me your problems and I share “words of wisdom”. Like me some of you can acknowledge that your life would be better if only you took your advice.

The irony of the matter is that I know the answers to my problems. None the less the answers are as difficult to execute as the problems. 

Have you ever wondered why the people who have the most personal troubles can sometimes give the best advice? I did too till I realized I was in the same condition. Surrounded on every side yet when you open your mouth you are astonished at what you said. 

It isn’t a lie that sometimes when you are in a fix you know what to do but just can’t seem to muster the energy to do it.

Sometimes getting out of the bed can be a struggle, sometimes, it can be taking your own advice, sometimes it’s pulling yourself away from the t.v, other times it’s avoiding your guilty pleasures. but whatever it is that you find difficult to do because of some aperrant warring forces in your mind…I resonate with you. And I know this works…never till forever give up on those mental resolutions.
